Join them at Pathfinder House, 156 Northgate, Darlington. on Sunday 17th October from 2pm, for a whole host of table top games (and more!).

Why do we want to raise awareness? Dementia can affect anyone at any age, but is more commonly associated with people over 65. It comes in all kinds of forms and variations (over 200 different types!). With it comes a broad range of issues, including memory problems, communication challenges and much worse including loss of motor control. Regardless of which type of dementia is diagnosed and what part of the brain is affected, each person will experience dementia in their own unique way.
